An Interesting Fact On Winfield, Sullivan

Posted by Mike Wobschall on August 6, 2009 – 4:33 pm

A lot of times interviews and press conferences become awfully redundant, especially at training camp when players, coaches and reporters are cooped up in the same location for weeks on end. But then there are times when interesting facts come out, and one of those instances occurred today (Thursday) during Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress’ press conference.

A reporter asked Childress about C John Sullivan’s penchent for taking notes.

“We have some copious note-takers,” Childress said. “Antoine Winfield being one of them, he could probably publish a book on those spiral notebooks, he has volumes of information on whether it’s lectures or technique or film study on personnel in this division that he’s played. The good ones and the better ones do that. They build their repertoire and go back and look at those. I see that from Sullivan. I sit back behind his shoulder, he’s not just sitting there with his book closed and staring out into space. He is writing a good bit.”

Just an interesting fact I thought I’d pass along.

    I hope Sullivan can step right in and replace Birk without any hiccups. The last thing we need is fumbled snaps and full-starts from essentially a rookie center (being that he hasn’t taken a regular-season snap yet).
